Off Season Performance Program for LHS Athletics – Fall 2016

Beginning on Tuesday, August 30, our assistant strength and conditioning coach, Jake Goslin, will begin our performance program for all LHS athletes who are not currently participating in a fall sport.  What is the Performance program?  For those that are not familiar with it, the mission of the program is to “to develop championship caliber, multi-sport athletes with an emphasis on year-round training.”

Performance sessions will run 3:00 pm to 4:30 pm, Tuesdays and Thursdays.  It is the goal of the LHS coaching staff (all 23 sports!) that all winter and spring athletes plan to attend these workouts.

All workouts will be designed and implemented by our head performance coach, Arlen Harris and our off-season coaches.  Coach Goslin will run theperformance sessions with the help of our winter and spring coaches.

The Lutheran High School Strength and Conditioning/Performance Program is designed to provide our student-athletes the following:  a program that is committed to developing athletes into champions in their respective sports; to provide every athlete with the very best evidenced-based exercise programs; a program dedicated to improving our athletes strength, speed, agility, power, and flexibility; to develop team bonding, leadership, mental toughness, and discipline through rigorous physical and mental test; and to properly educate our athletes on the importance of rest, injury prevention, and nutrition.

To that end, the LHS performance philosophy centers on creating an atmosphere that allows each student-athlete to maximize their potential and achieve the highest level of athletic development possible while learning skills and values that will help them maintain a healthy lifestyle in the future.

If you have any questions regarding the program, please contact

the athletic office or our performance coaches:

Head Performance Coach – Arlen Harris –

LHS Hires New JV Girls Basketball Coach

Dan Kreienkamp

Lutheran High School is proud to announce the hiring of Mr. Dan Kreienkamp, new theology instructor and spiritual life coordinator at LHS, as our JV Girls Basketball coach for the 2016-2017 school year.

Mr. Kreienkamp has a rich background in teaching, coaching, and working with young people. Dan is a local St. Louis product, graduating from Lutheran High School South in St. Louis. While attending Lutheran South he was a member of the basketball and baseball programs (in addition to an extremely short football career under the tutelage of Dr. Ernstmeyer). Following high school he attended Concordia University Nebraska where he worked with intramural sports all 4 years, including as the co-head of the program his 4th year. He graduated with a BA in psychology and DCE certification with an emphasis in youth ministry. On his internship and first call as a DCE at Calvary Lutheran school in San Lorenzo, CA he coached both boys and girls basketball. After returning home to attend graduate school in St Louis he coached boys basketball for his alma mater Christ Community Lutheran school while receiving a MA in school counseling from Lindenwood University.  Dan is teaching theology and serving as the spiritual life coordinator at Lutheran High. He continues to play any sport he can, and cheers on the SLU Billikens basketball team with his son Noah and wife Jennifer.

Mr. Kreienkamp joins our basketball staff to add to our already-excellent staff of coaches: Luttschwager, Ernstmeyer, Long, and Schoedel.  He will bring a positive Christian demeanor, ability to build relationships with our young ladies, and a strong personality which will leave a lasting impact on the program and the LHS community. We look forward to Mr. Kreienkamp working with the program!
